British Airways allows employees' religious wear

British Airways allows employees’ religious wear
Check-in worker Nadia Eweida can now wear her cross.

This is part of a longer story that started last fall when Nadia was sent home for wearing her crucifix. (British Airlines Sends Employee Home for Wearing Crucifix).

A Christian employee of British Airways (BA) has lost her suit against the airline for telling her she cannot wear her crucifix, while allowing Muslim and Sikh employees to don their religious scarves and turbans.

Nadia Ewedia, a check-in worker at London’s Heathrow Airport, claims she was told in a letter from the company that her cross breached its uniform rules. “British Airways permits Muslims to wear a headscarf, Sikhs to wear a turban, and other faiths [to wear] religious apparel,” said Ewedia, a seven-year employee of the airline. “Only Christians are forbidden to express their faith.”

Nice job British Airways, thanks for being consistent.

    Oh? You were expecting consistency?
    I could make this a long comment but I’ll leave it at this.
